"The quality of the wickets was really good at both the venues. They were challenging for the batsmen. The bounce was exceptional. Our whole idea was to expose the boys to bouncy wickets so that they play not just on flat wickets and then we can see who can stand up and perform when the conditions are challenging," said Dravid.

The bowlers dominated in the tournament with 200 crossed only five times.

"We saw almost 45 guys over the course of the four-day and one-day games. We are not really looking to give individual attention at this stage. This was a selection sort of a tournament before we narrow in on the top 30-40 players.

"It is a stage where we are looking to identify players. It is going to exciting to work with them leading to the U-19 World Cup," Dravid added.
